Symptoms of Defective Hip Implants

Pain and Suffering Compensation for Symptoms of Defective Hip Implants

Despite the toughest product safety regulations in the world, producers of medical devices frequently overlook design and manufacturing defects that can cause serious injuries in patients. Recently, DePuy Manufacturing recalled one of its products, a defective ASR hip replacement implantable 'ball joint' that may become misaligned in the femur and result in serious injury, including the possible loss of mobility, if not treated properly.

If you are the recipient of a hip replacement surgery that included the implantation of a DePuy ASR hip replacement component device built after July, 2003, you are entitled to pursue a claim for replacement surgery. Unfortunately, DePuy has admitted financial liability* limited to reasonable costs associated with the surgery. It makes the decision about what is fair and reasonable, leaving it up to the injured victim to fight for full and fair compensation for damages such as pain and suffering, lost earnings, complications from surgery and medications and physical therapy.

What to Watch For?

Symptoms of injuries resulting from a defective DePuy hip replacement ball joint include, but are not limited to:

  • Severe swelling around the area of the implant, as well as throughout the hip, thigh and lower back on the side of the surgery. Swelling is the result of massive tissue buildup.
  • Persistent and chronic pain in the immediate area of the implant, as well as the thigh and muscle area affected by the tissue destruction and bone erosion
  • Loss of mobility and difficulty walking without severe pain and stiffness. The misaligned device will generally result in loss of motion that is natural in a ball joint.
